Night to Day




People should stay nameless faces
Passing by
Seeming farther away than the stars that twinkle
High above in the universe
Mystical and beautiful but impossible to hold
Even though you reach out and point
Beautiful stars
That shine too bright

They claim to brighten the night sky
Sometimes I find peace in the reality that is darkness
The sad reality that some say is cold and bitter
Silence that doesn't lie yet does cause pain
Like Ruthless people

That spit their venom to save themselves
From innocence
And purity of honesty and love
They slither their way into the night
But are restless there
They want another victim

I shall not be theirs
Instead I will look to the sun
And learn to love it's light, it's warmth, and it's shelter
